Christmas Dinner No.2 - 8th December 2015
- Turkey Slices (2)
- Pigs (no blankets!) (2)
- Roast Potatoes (5)
- Yorkshire Puddings (2)
- Cranberry Sauce (Separate)
- Extra Gravy (30p)
Price: £5 for main meal only.
I learnt my lesson yesterday and asked for extra gravy, however I didn't really expect I would have to pay for it! There was a fair amount of gravy anyway, enough for a normal person but not for me.
One or two carrots that were beyond their best and slightly under-cooked for my liking. Sprouts were cooked nicely, not too firm and not to soft.
The turkey slices were exceptional, in a different league to what I have had so far.
Pigs were great, but where's the blankets Sainsbury's?! ;-)
Roast potatoes were lovely, crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
Yorkshire puddings were a nice addition and were nicely done too.
Overall a good budget Christmas dinner.
Christmas Dinner No.1 - 7th December 2015
- Turkey roll (4 slices)
- Pig in blanket (1)
- Roast potatoes (3)
- Mashed potato
- Cranberry sauce
Price: £6 with dessert (Christmas pudding)
Main meal was a little cold and not enough gravy for my liking. Requested it to be re-heated and for more gravy, which I got.
Mashed potato wasn't the best, didn't enjoy the texture, it was a bit dry.
Vegetables were all good, cooked nicely.
Turkey roll slices were okay, for turkey roll slices!
Roast potatoes I think were courtesy of Aunt Bessie, or someone. Still they were okay, I've certainly had much worse.
Pig in blanket was good, as was the stuffing.
